Halloween is coming!

Edinburghs "The Dome" has got its famous decorations up and running for this years Christmas Winterwonderland already, making our beautiful city even more beautiful than usual! In the run up to to saying goodbye to 2017 there are so many things to look forward to the Christmas Winterwonderland being one of them.


But lets not get ahead of ourselves. The next holiday to celebrate this year is Halloween and it is just around the corner!! Edinburgh is the perfect location for Halloween for mainly two reasons. Firstly, the Capital itself has quite a dark history. Even the cobbled streets, tight closes, historic architecture and Edinburgh Castle can give you a feel for what this iconic City once was. It is fair to say that Edinburgh has had its share of rogues and gruesome tales. Once the City of where Deacon William Broadie lived, who is thought to be the inspiration behind the prominent novel "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" and also home to the notourious Burke and Hare. Edinburgh is full of history just going a walk threw the Royal Mile and Old Town you are literally standing on the grounds of so much more than just any City. If you fancy a more intricate tour to learn about the dark history of Edinburgh there are various companys that provide this sevrice for a suitable price. There is also a variety of tours you may go on, the underground tour is one of the most popular. You are provided with a spooky tour guide who makes the experience even more exhilarating, take you threw the old town threw the closes and wynds educating you at every moment and lastly you are shown to the underground vaults of Edinburgh. These vaults date back hundreds of years and back then this was an underground city. Your tour guide tells you of all the stories and former residents of the vaults. You are then free to explore the dark underground without your tour guide. It really is a fantastic experience and makes a brilliant memory for Halloween.

The second reason that makes Edinburgh the ideal location for Halloween is the events our City is hosting this year! There is something for everyone! For the kids there is plenty to offer from Halloween Cake decorating to a special Halloween trail through the Royal Botanic Garden not to mention various childrens parties! One thing Edinburgh is certainly known for is the night life which means there is just as much on offer this year for Adults. Watch this terrific City come alive as the daylight dies down. This Halloween Edinburghs Summerhall will be hosting a Massaoke Halloween Party for those who love both karaoke and Halloween - what a brilliant combination! There will also be a Game of Thrones night at Frankenstein Pub and The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Brewhemia in The Old Town. This year Edinburgh has been chose for the world renowned Elrow Haunted House which will be an all day event at the Royal Highland Centre making it the biggest ever Elrow indoor event!
